We all have to put up with stress sometimes, especially in recent years. At Natural Definition, we care about your wellbeing and want to help you find peace and calm in the midst of deadlines, school runs and more. Treat yourself to a little luxury with a relaxing massage. We have different options, including Full Body Holistic Massage, and Back, Neck and Shoulder Holistic Massage, so you can choose what’s right for you.
Our massages take place in our peaceful Relaxation room. With its colour-changing lights, calming music, and gorgeous natural decoration, this is the perfect place to let go of any stress.
Holistic Massage incorporates elements from Swedish massage, lymphatic massage and acupressure. It is profoundly relaxing and is an alternative to the more robust Swedish massage treatment. We have a comprehensive knowledge of these massage techniques, meaning we can adapt our routine according to your specific needs.
Swedish massage, or classic massage, promotes relaxation by releasing muscle tension. It is gentler than deep tissue massage and better suited to relaxation and tension relief. Lymphatic drainage massage gently encourages the movement of lymph fluids around the body. It removes waste and toxins from body tissues.
While acupuncture uses needles to stimulate the various pressure points around the body, acupressure is done by stimulating these points through massage therapy. It reduces stress, boosts digestion, and improves metabolism.
Are you looking for a more in-depth, technical massage, such as a sports massage or acupuncture? We recommend a specialist massage appointment with Debbie!
Do I have to undress?
We will always protect your modesty and make sure you feel comfortable throughout treatments. You’ll never have to uncover anything you don’t want to. We need access to the skin in the areas being massaged, meaning you can lift up tops or briefly unhook bras if you prefer.
Does “full body” really mean my whole body?
If there are any areas you’d prefer not to be touched, please let us know. Front and back of legs and arms, shoulders, neck, back, and stomach are included in a typical full body massage, but you are welcome to pick and choose what’s best for you. If you’re feeling a little unsure, we recommend starting with a Back, Neck and Shoulder Holistic Massage and then seeing how you feel.
How can massage help me?
Massages are designed to help you relax while reviving and healing the body. They can help hugely with emotional, mental or physical health. If you suffer from anxiety, asthma, constipation, high blood pressure, chronic pain or arthritis, massage is an excellent option for symptom relief. Massage makes you feel good in lots of ways, and can have a positive effect on your whole body - your bones, your muscles, your heart, your skin, your breathing, digestion, and your mind. It refreshes knotted or tired muscles, increases blood circulation, promotes healing, increases energy and releases endorphins (happy chemicals in the body!).
Is there anything I need to do to prepare?
We suggest you avoid eating large meals or drinking alcohol on the day of your massage before your appointment. Make sure you drink plenty of water before and after to help your body flush out any toxins. We also suggest wearing loose clothing, as we apply essential oils to the skin. Try to arrange your massage for a time when you can really enjoy its benefits, with plenty of wind-down time after the appointment.
What do I need to do during the appointment?
Lie back, relax, and enjoy! We’ll let you know if you need to keep still or move around. If you’d like to, we will have a great chat. If you’d prefer to stay quiet, we suggest adding “The Silent Treatment” to your booking for free. At any time during the treatment, if you feel pain or have any concerns at all, please do let us know promptly.
Will I be able to make sure I have a female masseuse?
All of our staff at Natural Definition are women, so you’ll definitely have a female masseuse.
Will the massage hurt?
We don’t use any techniques that cause pain. The most you’ll feel is a bit of pressure as we release any muscle tension. A massage does not have to hurt to work!
How often should I get a massage?
For most people, a session every 3-6 weeks can be very beneficial to overall health. If you have a more specific concern that may require more attention, we recommend a consultation with Debbie to discuss a treatment plan!
